Parker, Az – In three short weeks, PMC Racing will launch their two-truck team assault in the Arizona desert in search of victory during round one of Best in the Desert Racing Association’s five round series. PMC Racing will be looking to carrying momentum over from their 2010 victory at the inaugural BITD BlueWater Desert Challenge late in the year to help weather a storm that has kept them from finishing the Parker 425 the last two years.
PMC Racing took advantage of Best in the Desert’s pre-run last weekend and returned home with high hopes of success. “The pre-run was very successful and we came away from it with more knowledge to help our team strategize for the race. The course is still fast in some portions as it has been in the past, however some sections are definitely rougher then they have been in the past and these sections are the ones that will change the outcome of the race,” commented Trent Beaver driver of record for PMC Racing’s #8105 stock full.
The PMC Racing team has been hard at work since the BlueWater Desert Challenge performing ground up race preparation on each truck to start the 2011 season off with great success for both trucks. As preparation for both trucks finish up this week, PMC Racing will then put the trucks through a hard testing session trying to simulate race conditions before starting their final preparation before the race.
Race weekend for PMC Racing will start on Thursday, February 3rd when Jim Beaver driver of record for the PMC Racing Ford Trophy Truck #15 will take on a field of over 50 of desert racing’s best in hopes of putting the PMC Racing Trophy Truck in the pole position for that weekend’s race. Friday, February 4th is a resting day for the team and also gives fans a chance to mingle with the drivers during technical inspection and contingency. The 2011 Parker 425 will start at day break on Saturday, February 5th and will run into the early morning hours of February 6th before concluding with awards presentations on February 6th as well.
